Metal Musicians React to the Death of Falling in Reverse’s Derek Jones


The metal world is still processing the death of Falling in Reverse guitarist Derek Jones. He was only 35 years old. No cause of death has yet been revealed publicly.

Falling in Reverse vocalist Ronnie Radke broke the news yesterday, and the band’s former but longtime drummer Ryan Seaman was quick to share his condolences as well. Since then, a number of notable musicians from around the metal community have expressed their sadness with public tributes to Derek. You can take a look at those below.

Jones joined Falling in Reverse in 2010 and appeared on all four of their albums. His fiancé and partner of ten years, Christina Cetta, died of cancer last November. A fundraiser to help cover her costs of treatment netted nearly $50,000.

On behalf of everyone at MetalSucks, we continue to wish Derek’s family, friends and bandmates the best during this tragic time.
